Ride: Peace…through Connection with Self – Spirit – Nature
Ride is a true story of the power of now
Ride is about Connection and Peace
It may change and expand you in ways that surprise you
We have times when our peace is challenged / shattered;
Our lives take a path we could never have envisioned and despair is so very real.
Pain is consuming, fear is circling and peace seems impossible.
This is when in the NOW, We Need to …
BE and Stand in our Truth, while in our Pain
Feel while in Stillness
To Listen and To Hear
And Then to Know.
Ride is the Power; of Grief, of Change, of Honesty, of the Now
Ride is the Power of Connection – To Self, To Spirit, To Nature
My peace was challenged in a way I never could have conceived and,
if I can retrieve peace – Anyone can… Regardless of what shattered the peace.
Ride is about life and being in your power – no matter what is happening….
I hope it is inspiring and gives courage
Ride - the blurb
Easy to read and thought-provoking,
Ride reveals how conscious connection
to self, spirit and nature
creates peace in anyone’s life, anytime.
Ride will take you through emotion,
different realms and societal barriers.
As a taboo subject, there was no
real support for people like her,
So she ventured where most won’t dare;
deep within, to be still and listen.
Remarkable events occurred; clarity,
expansion, freedom and peace followed.
An inspiring true story of a mother’s
courage to embrace reality and
reclaim peace after her Son’s suicide.
To empower any experiencing change,
ones seeking peace, those with
preconceived ideas about suicide
and any that question
existence of spirit.
Ride is deliberately NOT available on amazon

Andrea Taylor lives in Nelson New Zealand.
From a young age the word alternative was used by those around her to describe her – unsure of what that meant she carried on being curious and questioning much of what was being presented to her. She attended University to study Psychology, Education and Sociology with the view of becoming an Educational Psychologist. Early on in her university study she realised that university was a lot like school and she was still being told what to think rather than how to think. She left University with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and a few papers towards a Masters. Since then she has formally studied Yoga and continues to follow a Yogic path today. She has worked a variety of roles, mainly involving supporting people on their career and life pathways. Many of these roles she did while home-schooling and raising her two children.
